I have used DashThis with all my clients, because it is the fastest, easiest, and best-developed reporting platform. I have tried Google Data Studio and many other reporting integrations, but they just don't have the speed or capabilities of DashThis. With in-depth filtering, you can create reporting modules not available in any other dashboard, like deep source-medium targeting or landing page data, etc. Whatever data you need, you can get access. Their API integrations are increasing all the time, and if they don't currently connect to something, request access.

Great value for the money. Excellent for smaller agencies with multiple projects and teams in a smaller space. We can quickly roll out mobile displays to help with a particular deployment push or monitoring a clients website engagement. It's also useful for showing live data without requiring analytics to run reports from a CRM, etc.

Cons
Moment Zero Inc.
  • I'm interested in implementing more tools into the system, such as Google My Business or OpenTable to truly make it a universal analytics dashboard.
  • Instead of just month over month date ranges, I would also like to see a YTD date range.

  • A bit more flexibility in the number of columns would be nice.
  • Ability to scale to mobile device (web).
  • App capabilities are missing on Android.

With a simple interface and available templates, creating basic dashboards is easy. Obviously depending on the data you want to visualize, there may be higher learning curves. That being said, they have a huge amount of integrations and extensible frameworks. If you are using anything made in the past ten years there is an API function or integration that can get it talking to the platform. As such, it's pretty easy to hit the main data points you want and get it on a cheap display in front of your team.

Support Rating
Moment Zero Inc.
I always get a same day response to my questions and they reach out enough that I feel like I can ask questions but not too much that I get annoyed.

The support levels vary based on the level of plan that you have but that's to be expected. Virtually everything except the Enterprise plan has basic chat/email support. While they are responsive they are not going to be much assistance in helping you figure out API calls or implementing 3rd party integrations. That is to be expected and the support community can pretty much get you in the right direction if you look.

Very simplified compared to other options. Needs to be able to tie in more conversion data.

Domo is more robust. We do use both because Geckoboard is really easy to show the rest of our team without the need for additional licenses.

  • While we originally used this as an internal IS tool, we eventually have expanded it to be used by nearly every department.
  • Because pricing is monthly, we can grow or decrease our usage based on our current client needs.
  • Because it is low cost and easy to deploy, we can utilize it in place of considerable resources in analytics and reporting by delivering snapshots of data without pulling reports.
